Musings, ponderings and various observations on the intersection of BJJ/Martial arts training and the living of life. I have no inclination toward either political correctness or correct spelling. This blog, such as it is, remains fundamentally an unfiltered gush of thought ... both raw and unpolished.
People with these habits get way, way more done than those who don’t ...
I am often asked by people, how I did this or that thing - how to do overseas travel, how to get enough money to not need to worry about it, how to get a BJJ black belt, how to catch a ten pound trout, how to plan a wilderness adventure, how to write a book, build a house, and on and on ...
Designing and creating the life you want seems pretty straight-forward to me - but only if you have a couple of basic habits in place. People with these habits get way, way more done than those who don’t ... so, here they are:
Attention to detail ... this is crucial, if we want to venture beyond the ordinary. The big picture is about ‘going broad’ but details are unearthed when we drill down.
Industriousness ... this, in my view, is very often a more important ingredient than ‘intelligence’ when it comes to being successful in life. I know lots of intelligent people, who don’t get anything done.
A little disagreeability ... very important if you want to carve your own path. Acceptance of the status quo isn’t how new things are discovered, not how new paths are forged. Question everything. Think for yourself.
